OM…Gossip Girl!

I’ve made no secret about the fact that I am (a) too old to be watching Gossip Girl and (b) watch Gossip Girl. And today I’m adding (c) to the list: wearing Gossip Girl, after a lunchtime run to Target with my friend Dana. Anna Sui, who is also too old to be watching Gossip Girl, designed a line for Target based on her favorite show, with looks inspired by Serena, Blair, Jenny and—inexplicably—Vanessa. I managed to pick up a sheer dot jacquard dress inspired by Blair:

What’s your damage, Gossip Girl?

Okay, so I’m revealing a lot about myself with this post. First. I watch Gossip Girl, and I’m not exactly the demographic. Second, I am (was?) the demographic for Heathers, the “mean girls” genre prototype that paved the way for subsequent high school high-fashion flicks. (It is notable that Mean Girls director Mark Waters is brother of Heathers screenwriter Daniel Waters.) Heathers remains one of my all-time faves. Which is why I couldn’t help but be a little miffed by Blair’s blatant rip off last week of Heather #1’s personal style from her signature red accessories to the plaid jacket right down to the white tights from 20 years ago. How very.
